I sent an off list message Thursday evening and heard back from him around 10 AM today (Friday).
He is safe, and from what information he has picked up, Ojai proper was OK as of this morning. Unfortunately, its not over until Mother Nature says it is over, so guarded optimism seems to be the order of the day. Keep him and others in your thoughts and prayers.

Steve, I am packed and leaving on one of only two roads exiting the valley. I am sending messages to family where I will be. Looks real grim, as the most powerful category of Santa Ana winds are predicted for today, and Ojai is now nearly 50% surrounded by the fire perimeter.
Thanks for the concern.
Mandatory freight car content--I am leaving it all behind.
In news reports of the horrendous fires burning in SOCAL, the town of Ojai has been mentioned. That is where list member Andy Carlson lives. Probably others live in the affected areas, too. In this house when our friends are in peril, we turn to prayer.
